I'm a professional working mom who loves spending time in the kitchen having fun! In a perfect world I'd work 2-3 days a week and spend the rest of my time at home with my family.
My favorite things to cook
In the winter something warm, savoury, healthy and satisfiying in the crock pot or on the stove. Lots of great healthy are hearty soups are had in our house!
In the summer something light and fresh maybe a salad or something on the grill.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love cooking big batches of seasonal foods. It could be the frugal eastern european in me!
My cooking triumphs
I can cook just about anything I have tried somewhere else.
I love trying new foods then finding a version I make at home. Jerk chicken, pad thai, chick pea curry are just a few examples of things I tried then rereacted at home thanks to the internet and my big stash of cook books.
My cooking tragedies
Overcooking meat.... that's about it!
